Individual Double Chocolate Cake

To say that I am a choco-holic is, quite frankly, an understatement. I can, and do, eat chocolate in some form Sometimes twice a day.


Having said that, of course, making single serving desserts has become quite a thing for me lately. Alexander would rather eat ice cream, Sabrina dislikes “too much” chocolate (I swear she’s not related to me..), and J turns into a gremlin if he eats sugar too close to bedtime.

More for me, that’s the way I see it.


The original recipe for this includes placing a dollop of peanut butter in the center of the cake before baking – which, given my undying affection for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, is a very good idea indeed.

Individual Double Chocolate Cake – adapted from The Comfort of Cooking

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbs granulated sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 tbs. butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tbs. chocolate chips

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and sugar until combined. Whisk in milk, butter and vanilla until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Scrape the batter into a microwave-safe ramekin. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Consume with gusto!

  1. I’m with you. Have to have a little chocolate everyday. I even find ways since I don’t eat regular sugar anymore like using healthy raw honey or coconut sugar. That said, I’ll never give up my 90% Lindt chocolate. And I have a kid (poor sapling must have been switched at birth) who doesn’t like chocolate either. What in the world??? 😉 Love individual desserts like this.
